  • Stop making videos about Hyundai Kia and comparing them to Audi without mentioning that Hyundai Kia brought over former Audi designers. That is why there are so many design elements from the VW AG

MR peter Schreyer who was working for Audi ( head designer of Audi for 20 years ) has designed this K5 car ...How come you are not aware of it ???? of course the rear end of this car is an AUDI inspired .....even the word KIA means : Korean Imitated Audi =KIA .......

  • I have a 2021 Honda Accord 2.0t Sport. I love it but I wish it has a sport tuned suspension. The 2021 Kia K5 needs a LSD. Kia K5 GT is sporty looking and arguably a very attractive car, but I prefer my Accord for city driving. The Kia I drove in Florida was more like $36000 USD.

  • Definitely agree with Thomas on the shifter. I'd rather have a shifter instead of the push buttons,I can't give in to that concept quite yet. Loving the direction Kia Hyundai are going with their appreciation of sedans not being totally out of style! Only if GM would follow suit and give more emphasis on sedans instead of following the naysayers and criminally killing off the sedan!

  • Stinger is still more handsome, and while the older Stinger (pre 2022) don't have as good comfort tech, they have a significantly nicer interior, shifter, seats, etc.. The new stinger also gets the better infotainment, but no all-digital cluster still, which I don't really mind, but all digital can be nicer when they add extra features and customization to it.

    Eileen the CrowEileen the CrowVor Monat
  • The stinger badges often got replaced with that korean (E) thing or the k thing you showed. New stingers are getting the new kia logo without the oval, which I think does look better, but it's still kinda a strange logo

  • Stinger v6 is not available in Canada in rwd only , but soon we will be able to obtain the 2.5 T . We must wait to know if it will be available in rwd only . The cars manufacturers are afraid to send us their high performance model in rwd only, as if we had not learned to drive large American rwd barge until the 70s .

  • There should be an awd version for around $35k along with the stinger rwd with the same powertrain. I could see people going either way Wishlists aside, with fwd it's still class competitive in 0-60 with a little extra grunt for passing. A full $1500 lower msrp than the top powertrains on the accord/camry/mazda6 is not small if it transfers to the real world
